Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #105 - Stampin' Up! I Love Lace

Calypso Coral #1


Welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop! Welcome from Rebecca Scurr's blog.

This week the Blog Hop challenge is all about CASE-ing from the Wedding pages of the Occasions catalogue.

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.  This whole blog hop is about using the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues to help you create.  Sometimes crafters need a springboard to just get started and the catalogues are certainly a demonstrator or customer's best resource.

Here's my card..

I was inspired by the the embossed vellum layer on the card in the catalogue and used Color Coach Colors of Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride. These colours are actually quite difficult to use together since Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride have red tones and Pink Pirouette has a blue tone.

Small touches seemed to be the key and I layered my Pink Pirouette card stock behind the vellum layer which seemed to diffuse the colour a bit.

I heat embossed the vellum with I Love Lace and used the Jute Ribbon and the Blushing Bride flower trim from the Artisan Embellishment Kit to layer over the top. The Chalk Talk stamp was stamped with Calypso Coral and then the centre sentiment was stamped with Blushing Bride and sponged around the edge. I added a peep of Tea Lace Doily to echo the filter paper in the original card.

I finished off with some Pearls that I coloured with the medium shade of the Pink Pirouette Blendabilities markers. 

Here's the original inspiration:
